Leeshaw Reservoir

Tuesday 27th December a.m.
 A dull overcast morning with fog on the hill tops, still mild though at 7°C. We went
to Leeshaw Reservoir near Oxenhope, as we pulled up we noticed a bird fly on to
the top of a telegraph poll. We quickly grabbed the camera and bins to see what it
was and get a snap, it was a Kestrel which stopped long enough for a snap although
not very clear in the poor light. A good start, we then walked along the track and saw
a male and female Goosander on the water and some BH Gulls.We headed back to
the car then a Grey Wagtail landed on the wall in front of us,some more pics as it moved
into the field where the farmer looks to be storing muck.Not a bad morning.
